New Smashing Pumpkins song actually pretty smashing

Billy Corgan gets all kinds of critical crap (some of it from me), for lots and lots of legitimate reasons, but this Teargarden by Kaleidyscope album he's sporadically releasing is so far pretty awesome, though we're only two songs out of 40-something in. Check out "Widow Wake My Mind" at the Smashing Pumpkins' Mypsace page. (Also checkout the other Teargarden track, "Song for a Son"). Purposely weird title, organ breakdown and all, you can't tell me modern pop rock wouldn't be improved by this song climbing up the charts.
